II am about to turn 75 next week and have been in excruciating pain for over five years. Most of my treatments have been through Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, MI. I have been treated by a very well-known urologist, a pain specialist and their very well educated staffs but I am getting so tired of being in constant pain. The only time I don’t feel the pain is if I sleep which is getting more difficult every day. I also am experiencing a drooping left hand which makes writing this message today most difficult. There is no connection between my hand and my pudental nerve problem. It is quite obvious that the pudental nerve is up under my pelvic bone on my right side only and I would define it as unreachable. I have made a couple of suicide attempts due to the almost unbearable pain. I am not proud of that fact but I am being totally honest. I have also been considering contacting an orthopedic surgeon who would break my pelvic bone to relieve the nerve that is how drastic my thoughts have traveled. Some days i am so nauseous I can’t eat or even concentrate.
Can any one relate to what I am experiencing? I would welcome any responses particularly with words of encouragement.
